Murray Carter, 17th Generation Yoshimoto Bladesmith and Hap Stanley, founder of NanoHone Abrasives, have combined their 80 years of hand sharpening experience for your benefit. In this historic ‘hands-on’ two day event, learn the “Carter-Stanley Method” directly from the masters in a private setting of only 8 students. Guaranteed Results! Since 2006, sharpening students from around the world have traveled to Oregon and Massachusetts to learn directly from Murray and Hap at a cost of several thousands of dollars…Now you can take advantage of this personal instruction for a fraction of that cost!
